  • “The time to begin writing an article is when you have finished it to your satisfaction. By that time you begin to clearly and logically perceive what it is you really want to say.” ~Mark Twain
  • “The writer must learn to read critically but constructively, to cut what is bad to reveal what is good. Eleanor Estes, the children’s book author, explains: ‘The writer must survey his work critically, coolly, as though he were a stranger to it. He must be willing to prune, expertly and hard-heartedly.’” ~ Donald M. Murray
  • “You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what's burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.” ~Arthur Polotnik
